BC Ferries announces Sailing Delay in effect for Northern Expedition on Thursday

As nasty weather tracks its path towards the North Coast on Thursday afternoon, BC Ferries has already made a schedule change to the planned Thursday departure of the Northern Expedition.

The Ferry Service posted the Service Notice to their website on Wednesday evening, advising that Thursday's 2:30 PM departure time has been moved back to 11:59 on Thursday evening, weather dependant and subject to change.

As we outlined earlier, Environment Canada has issued a Wind Warning for the North Coast and Haida Gwaii for Thursday afternoon and into the evening.

With conditions that would make a journey across Hecate Strait a less than enjoyable experience, the Ferry Service revised their schedule to set out for Haida Gwaii under calmer seas. The resulting schedule changes can be found at the top of this page.

You can review further updates from the BC Ferries website.
